"After a recent review of public records, Reuters found that “public pension funds in at least seven U.S. states have invested millions of dollars in an investment fund that owns a New York hotel and pays one of President Donald Trump’s companies to run it.
The seven states found investing in the fund are California, New York, Texas, Arizona, Montana, Michigan, and Missouri.
Included in the CIM Group’s portfolio is the Trump SoHo, from which Trump still earns revenue, despite having turned management over to a trust controlled by his eldest sons. CIM pays Trump International Hotels Management LLC 5.75 percent of the hotel’s operating revenues in exchange for managing and marketing the hotel.
Because of this arrangement, legal experts have said that Trump could be accused of violating the Constitution because the domestic emoluments clause prohibits “the flow of money from states to the pockets of a sitting president.”
